Opening March 8 | Saint Clair Cemin: Oedipus | Paul Kasmin Gallery 

March 8 – April 14, 2018
293 Tenth Avenue
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 8, 2018 from 6 – 8 pm

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculpture by Brazilian artist Saint Clair Cemin. This will be Cemin’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Oedipus takes on the renowned and influential Greek tragedy in order to interrogate the commanding force that human action can impose over what we perceive to be ‘destiny.’ Furthering the artist’s investigation into the symbolism of ancient mythology, the exhibition presents a new, twenty-part work alongside three sculptures that act as monuments to the power of language and family.
